This has my vote, as well as a set of pages to configure MailMan's
defaults for all other lists.  *THAT* would be incredibly useful
especially for corporate sites (I'm trying to roll out MailMan at VA

Note:  The default business should work as follows:  All list config
are either "default" or deviations from default.  Ergo, if a list is
configured and MailMan's defaults are later changed, the following
would happen:

  -- if the value is the same as the prior default, change the value
to the new default.

  -- if the value was changed from the prior default, leave it at its
current setting.

I'd love an option to support only MIME digests and to turn off
support for RFC (forget number) digests.  I'd also love an option to
set a Reply-To specific to digests and different from the list config
for individual messages (I set it to a
Please.Do.Not.Reply.to.Digests.Burst.Instead at whereever).

Version 1.x stuff.
